If you've ever been at ‘Rock Bottom’, or you're there now, this episode offers hope, direction and this may just be your big turning point.

The chemistry between Business Partners Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss is fun to hear as they discuss the beginnings of the Business Lunch Podcast and the origin story of Ryan's company, Digital Marketer (of which Roland is a partner). 

Ryan is an entrepreneur, author, and investor, and according to Shark Tank star, Daymond John, "His companies practically own the internet." He's the founder of Scalable and Digital Marketer. But Ryan has a great story, and he shares it today with you so that you can glean all the benefits.

  • The (surprising) origin story of Digital Marketer as told by Ryan Deiss.
  • Wise words from a billionaire.

"This billionaire told him if you can't describe your business, how your business works, how your business gets customers or the value that your business delivers, and you can't fit that description on a napkin, then it's too complicated." Ryan Deiss.

  • Some benefits of hitting rock-bottom.

"I think the benefit to hitting rock bottom is it forces you to establish a zero-cost basis on your life, and it forces you to deal with, okay, what are the only things that matter?" Ryan Deiss

  • An opportunity for you to re-launch your life/your story/your business/your career.
